It is a beautiful area nestled just outside of Seattle, here were some other pictures on our short little practice session: https://photos.app.goo.gl/3Vq4UNouszX3C5Wv9

Beautiful picture.

That backpack looks really large however.

Thanks, it somewhat is. We just ended up grabbing our dayhiking packs, so they fit a lot, and then we end up packing rain gear, sweaters, extra food, etc...

How are the temps? Looks like a Chilly ride.

Ntero 5 points

Very chilly by the time we got up that high. It felt like it dropped almost 20 celsius in those 20 miles.

alheim 4 points

Any idea how much gain there is over the 20 miles?

Ntero 1 point

I just did a Google maps bike directions with altitude thing, and it reported +3261 feet and -938 feet (there is a drop at the beginning).

Rainier is always beautiful and awesome, but the logging trash in the foreground is not.

Ntero 1 point

Yeah, the backroad weaves through some trashy logging roads, but give it a few miles and it starts getting a lot greener: https://photos.app.goo.gl/lcJG44COHJAb5SSJ2

I was still really happy with the framing of this shot in particular.

Gorgeous shot, what did you shoot this with?

Ntero 1 point

It has with my cheap cell phone, an LG Aristo :).

I give a lot of credit to the morning, it was beautiful. It was 6 am, the 24 hours of heavy rain had stopped a few hours earlier, and it was cold and foggy. This was a bit more of the same morning: https://goo.gl/photos/rrcxfi4K72SCZwcN6

Ooooh definitely super spooky :)

I don't mind at all, if you like this is the original: https://photos.app.goo.gl/FeuDZNnlXl4Flgw52 and a bunch of other fog pictures all taken on a pre-work walk that morning: https://photos.app.goo.gl/sl9aIofxFa2dUtFH2

I'm in Bellevue. What street is this?

Ntero 2 points

Its 98th Ave SE, right where it intersects with 7th Street. Just southwest of the pile of sky rises that make up the Bellevue skyline.

Not a single picture or real source demonstrating that you can see light through the five miles of tunnel. Just an unsourced wikipedia quote stating:

It had a grade of only 0.95 per cent westward, and was tangent; light at one end can be seen at the other, more than five miles away.

I watched; a few; videos; none of which show light whatsoever. I don't give a shit about the Connaught Tunnel nor am I a railroad enthusiast. Really, I just wanted to see a picture of 5 miles of tunnel with light at the other end. But no, this post is just another improperly sourced, sensationalized wikipedia 'fact'. Fact check yourselves people. We let 'fake news' happen by willingly disseminating sensationalized misinformation for the sake of a few up votes and a moment in Reddit's spot light. TIL has devolved in to a shit show of poorly sourced wikipedia articles. Shame.

TLDR; TIL a lot of TIL is BS.

That's because the light is too small too pick up on most pictures. For example, this is the pinpoint of light from a 2.3 mile snoqualmie tunnel in Washington from the eastern edge (looking west): https://photos.app.goo.gl/ALMtEmwTpPbtlH2S2

It's there if you zoom in, and was very noticeable in person. Now over double the distance...

villianz 3 points

Whoa. Would increasing the exposure brighten the spot at all or allow for the camera to pick up other light in the tunnel? Or was it just that dark?

Ntero 1 point

The spot itself is really bright, but it's the contrast; there is no other incoming light, and so the rest of the tunnel was ridiculously dark without lights.

Recently moved out west, and decided to use the long weekend to take a stab at exploring the Cascades. Headed out from Bellevue, and headed to Snoqualmie Pass. Slept there, and spent the next day racing down the mountains back home. Took some pictures on the way, I hope it inspires a few others to check out this amazing trail.

Have it on strava? I was planning a similar ride from Seattle to Ellensburg over 2 days

Akhavan's in NDG has something very similar: http://www.akhavanfood.com/contact.shtml

The name I found was Armenian string cheese. It looks a little different, maybe a different flavour, but it's salted, fresh cheese knots in brine: http://www.thekitchn.com/a-twist-armenian-string-cheese-125368
